General Class Information
All of our courses are taught by working artists & educators using quality materials in our climate controlled art studios at the Belle Levine Art Center. Individual instruction, small size, and a nurturing environment are hallmarks of our educational programs. We follow all NYS rules and regulations for safety and sanitation.
Adults generally purchase their own materials, and a recommended list is available on our website. We provide all materials for children’s classes and fees are included with tuition cost. Student contact information is provided to all instructors (email and phone numbers). Adults, if you purchase your materials in advance, we recommend that you retain your store receipt in case the class does not happen.
